The paper discusses how institutional systems cumulate violations of children’s rights, and addresses the multiple barriers to investing in the transition from a system of institutional care to a system of family-based care and community level services. The authors identify the need for a better understanding of financial frameworks underpinning both systems and for how they can support and provide incentives for deinstitutionalisation.
